WKB is a project partner for "Nasz ogród społeczny" (Our Social Garden) project initiated by Green Cross Poland. The purpose of the scheme is to support local citizen groups across the country in developing new green areas in their cities, and thus to enhance environmental protection and contribute to building co-operative relationships in the society.
WKB advised the global private markets investment manager, Partners Group, on the Polish legal aspects of the transaction under which a new investment vehicle established by Partners Group acting on behalf of its clients, together with its operating partner Northern Horizon Capital as a minority investor, acquired a portfolio comprising the majority of the assets of BPT Optima, an institutional real estate investment vehicle.
On 10 June 2014, the Polish Parliament adopted a significant set of amendments to the Polish Competition Law Act. The amended Act will come into force on 18 January 2015. The amendments are far-reaching and could have a major impact on the situation for both businesses and their managers. Businesses should react in a proactive manner to this new antitrust landscape in Poland. Set out in the newsletter is a brief overview of the most important changes to the Polish competition law regime, highlighting some of the practical consequences of the new provisions.
Two lawyers joined WKB team at the beginning of October. The team has been joined by a new Partner – Paweł Hincz, who will be cooperating with the M&A team and Piotr Grabarczyk who became a member of the banking and finance team. Both lawyers have an extensive experience in their fields and will significantly strengthen both teams.
The management of companies in Poland has become an exceptionally difficult task in recent years. This is due to many factors, including the fact that a correct interpretation of tax law has become a serious challenge to managers and executives. The publication “Odpowiedzialność karno-skarbowa członków zarządu oraz praktyczne sposoby jej ograniczenia” [Penal and fiscal liability of management board members and practical manners to reduce it], coauthored by Olaf Jędruszek, has been created just for this reason. It provides knowledge on penal and fiscal liability for management board members in a practical and intelligible manner, and shows examples of managing the risk of such liability.
We inform with great pleasure that in Chambers Europe 2014 ranking WKB is recommended in the following fields of law: public procurement, energy and natural resources, corporate law and M&A, restructuring and insolvency, competition law, employment, dispute resolution, environment, intellectual property and TMT.
